That is indeed Scott's problem; it is incorrect to attempt to be evenhanded between genocidal homicide bombers and the authorities who target them in order to protect their own citizens. One cannot be objective and eithical, and at the same time be morally neutral to the difference. Dace's problem is that he is a terrorist sympathizer, who attempts to rationalize such intentional acts of naked genocide.
